@doliveir What software are you using (e.g., OpenStudio, eQUEST, other)?

Going to downvote until we hear a little bit more about the request...which program is key in terms of describing what the actual procedure is to add one. Also what is the goal for having this included? Some programs can't model an interior window like this for light transmittance, but if the question was about conduction then there might be a workaround that approximates the effect. So depending on the program we might decide how to add one, but may not accomplish the modeling goal anyway.

I use "intersect in selection" and "match surfaces" function - much more robust. Draw a window in a all in one space, select it and adjacent one and do "intersect in selection" and "match in selection" - the window will appear in adjacent space with correct construction and boundary conditions.

If you are using Sketchup, just add a window the usual way on an inner wall surface. Then Copy and Paste In Place the window at the other side of the wall in the adjacent zone.

If you use this approach just copy the edges (not the window surface) and then choose paste in place. If you copy the surface your window may be inverted.
